Take a hike with Historian Maureen Lavelle as part of the Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania National Military Park's new series of “Fit-History” hikes. Lavelle will lead the hike from the industrial ruins of Catherine’s Furnace to the Union artillery position at Fairview, and discuss the devastation of farmlands and protection of cultural landscapes. Combining history and health, these ranger-led hikes are designed to cover a lot of ground in addition to a lot of history. This hike will cover about two to three miles per hour and will begin at Tour Stop #6, Chancellorsville Battlefield.
